If you’re looking for something just a bit different at the theater – Brian and Charles is going to hit the mark for you. Filmed as a British Mock-umentary, the movie follows Brian a man in Wales who tinkers and creates new inventions to pass the time. Like many of his past inventions, his robot made from an old washing machine doesn’t work at first – but it suddenly becomes sentient and Brian now has a friend he has to balance in his life.
The role of Brian is played by David Earl, who often plays slightly different roles of Brian, a slightly outcast village member. The character has appeared in After Life as well as Cemetary Junction – but is always a bit quirky and just off the edge of normal. And Brian and Charles is no different, it follows him as he forges new relationships, and takes on the village bully – all with a large washing machine-shaped robot next to him.
Brian and Charles definitely won’t be the movie for everyone, but it is a quiet, quirky, and odd film that will entertain most people. It doesn’t have the special effects that we’re used to seeing in summer blockbusters and paired with a bit of dry British humor, the movie will find a specific audience at the theater. Brian and Charles will make their theatric debut on Friday June 17th, and really will take you on a bit of a different journey than you’d expect.

About Brian and Charles:
BRIAN AND CHARLES follows Brian, a lonely inventor in rural Wales, who spends his days building quirky, unconventional contraptions that seldom work. Undeterred by his lack of success, Brian attempts his biggest project yet. Three days, a washing machine, and various spare parts later, he’s invented Charles, an artificially intelligent robot who learns English from a dictionary and has an obsession with cabbages. What follows is a humorous and entirely heartwarming story about friendship, family, finding love, and letting go.
